International cooperation to restore and connect urban environments in Latin AmeriCa and Europe

Project Details


Cities around the world are facing multiple environmental challenges which, in turn, affect water security and human health. The sustainable restoration of urban ecosystems through nature-based solutions (NBS) can help address these challenges, while also providing wider social, environmental and economic benefits. The EU-funded INTERLACE project led by the Ecologic Institute will connect cities from Europe and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and equip them to effectively restore and rehabilitate (peri)urban ecosystems for livable, resilient and inclusive cities. The project will improve the knowledge of restorative NBS, promote ecologically coherent city planning, and lay the foundation for lasting peer-to-peer interactions between EU and CELAC cities. A network for stakeholder exchange will promote cooperation for transformative impact and the project’s innovative methods will enable the co-production of governance tools for restorative NBS.
